Preparing your submissions
All submissions must be anonymous and must not contain name(s) of author(s) or any references of institutions for the purposes of blind peer review. Please ensure these are removed (including file names, captions, etc) prior to upload.
All submissions should be in English, formatted to the ServDes. conference template. Please download the template (at the bottom of this page) which has the instructions for formatting when writing the paper or workshop proposal. This allows for consistency and easy transition for camera ready conference proceedings.
References and citations should follow APA guidelines. Please read RMIT’s guideline on using APA 6th here
Submissions that do not comply with these criteria will be returned or rejected.
Long Paper Track submissions are now closed.
Extended deadlines for submissions that are currently open:
Short Paper Track: 8 December, 2019 (UTC midnight)
Workshop Track: 8 December, 2019 (UTC midnight)
Student Forums Track: 15 January, 2020 (EST 5pm)
Please make sure you submit to the appropriate tracks in the conference submission system.
All submissions will be blind peer reviewed according to evaluation criteria set by the relevant track chairs. Once reviewed, all authors will be notified of conditional acceptance or rejection. Submissions that are accepted conditionally will be required to address the feedback by the camera ready resubmission date (30th April 2020).
Long Papers that are unfortunately rejected will have the opportunity to submit again to the other tracks by 1st December 2019. The review process will provide succinct feedback and suggestions for modification towards other tracks before this time. However, the timing is very tight so please make sure you plan enough time for this possibility.
Acceptance of notification will be on 29th February 2020. Those accepted will be required to attend and present, discuss questions and engage with the conference program. This means at least one author must register for the conference for the submission to be included in the proceedings.
All accepted and revised submissions must be formatted in the ServDes. template and submitted to the conference system by 30th April 2020.
Accepted submissions will be made available prior to 6th July 2020 from www.servdes.org website.
